    I didn't like the bill, but under the circumstances it was the best that the senate could give. If the senate had a clean bill, things could have gotten worse. Another way to look at is if the speaker sat on the bill for days on end, trying to figure out what pork the house would put in, then it goes to the senate, and all is taken out. It will become a hot air balloon with unlimited time in the air. Not happy, but better than nothing.

    Mr. McConnell,
    Thank you for all that you do for the American people. We love you! You and our President and all of the hardworking senators are in our prayers for sure. You look a lot like my Dad (who is hanging with our heavenly father) and that is why I gravitate towards you a little. Anyway, my heart is happy now that the relief package has passed the senate. However, Ms. Pelosi and her minions are up to no good as always and I truly believe they have no regard for the American people. I have been so sickened by the games and shenanigans they continually play. They have wasted so much time, energy, and so much money its hard to take in at times. I wonder if they will ever just say "NO" to the evil one that dictates theirs moves. With that I thank you again and want to send a message to you by saying, Mr. Mitch McConnell "YOU ARE A ROCK STAR".
    Warmest regards,
    Ms. Jody Smith

    This is a BAD bill. Cut out the "pork barrel" crap. DO covid-19 measure with NO pork.

    the relief package should be for Americans who lost jobs and go to work only---if any money is given to ANYTHING else is a total sham. The old drunken bitch should not be permitted to hold country hostage just because she wants money for all of all her pork projects. Trump had better not sign this.

    I am not eanting to get sick, so I naturally do what I can to keep from getting sick, or causing someone else fron getting sick. I pride myself on the abundance of comon sense God has bestowed upon me. I am thankful for his blessings. However, if yoj are only helping those that are in business, that in my opinion is just wrong. It is the people, the consumers that are having a hard time. The consumers have to work, and live from pay check to pay check. Those people in business could just have their debts halted till this is over. The reg. Joe, owns nothing, and owes for everthing. You know this ain't right, and you have fell for all the hyped up bull shit, and I am ashamed of our elected officials. I pray God will intervene and give us what he knows is best for us, and not what we think we want. May god forgive you all for trying tp deceive us. Amen.

    I like pork. On a sandwich or a chop, but not in this bill. Could the "Stupid" spending in this bill actually be used for the good of all of us and not just a few or just cut it and save billions of dollars.

    What a crock,,,,!!!!!!!
    Question: Where does the government get "their" money to give away?
    Answer: From you,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The government is taking away your money, just to give it back to you and say "We saved you". That's what they call socialism, plain and simple. Wake up people, It's not "free Money".

    It sure says a lot all right. It says we need new elected officials who only vote for the issue at hand and don’t slip their political agenda into something that has nothing to do with the hurting Americans.

    What is included that did not affect the COVID-19? What pet projects are included?

    Thank God, you finally got everybody together, but I hope you did NOT let Nancy trick you into somethings we didn't need, BUT I do have a sneaking suspicion that she got something in the deal, such as 25million for the House of Representatives !!! What in the world is up with that ? How much other pork did she get that we the people are paying for ? People and small businesses were the ones that need the help pronto !!!

    I am outraged that pelosi and schumer made this bill about themselves and not about the American People. She is way too stupid to write these dmands herself and had to have help from the socialist who saw this as an opportunity to get things that were denied to them previously. If Cuomo is mad he didn't receive the money New York should have gotten then he should call schumer who was part of this pelosi circus because he does not have the stamina to tell her NO.

    The Press, as usual, cannot celebrate this historic accomplishment, but only magnify any perceived cracks! Press, learn a lesson in these hard times from the American people and rejoice in the resilience of not only Americans but globally!
